Thank you KE&G employees and their families for volunteering your time, to Empire CAT for the use of their Loader, to Border Traffic Safety for the safety fence, to  Dana Kepner Company for the food and refreshments, and to Toys R Us for allowing us to hold our toy drive at their location. We had another successful event! KE&G collected loader buckets full of new toys  from the generous people of our community. Much appreciation to those who  contributed. You helped children less fortunate to experience the joy of Christmas.

Once again, the KE&G ESOP Communication Committee has teamed up with Toys R Us and Empire CAT to help collect new, unwrapped toys for children of all ages for the Toys for Tots program. We will be set up with a donation table and a CAT Loader in the parking lot of Toys R Us store on 4525 North Oracle Road on December 5th, 6th, 12th, and 13th.

If you are looking for something to do to feed your soul during this holiday season, help us Fill the Loader bucket. Last year we collected over 2,000 individual items. Our goal is to help out as many less privileged children as possible for Christmas. With your contributions we can help meet that goal.

If you will not be able to make it out to see us but you like to make a contribution, monetary donations are also excepted online here:

Also, don’t forget, if your family or a family you know is in need of a little extra help this holiday season, you may apply for assistance online on the Toys for Tots website: Request a Toy.
